Boys of Summer Cover Reveal by C.J. Duggan
The Cover
Book Description
It seemed only natural to nickname them the ‘Onslow Boys’. Every time they swaggered in the front door of the Onslow Hotel after a hard week’s work, their laughter was loud and genuine as they settled onto their bar stools. I peeked through the restaurant partition, a flimsy divider between my world and theirs. I couldn’t help but smile whenever I saw them, saw him ... Toby Morrison.

Quiet seventeen-year-old Tess doesn’t relish the thought of a summertime job. She wants nothing more than to forget the past haunts of high school and have fun with her best friends before the dreaded Year Twelve begins.

To Tess, summer is when everything happens: riding bikes down to the lake, watching the fireworks at the Onslow Show and water bomb fights at the sweltering Sunday markets.

How did she let her friends talk her into working?

After first-shift disasters, rude, wealthy tourists and a taunting ex-boyfriend, Tess is convinced nothing good can come of working her summer away. However, Tess finds unlikely allies in a group of locals dubbed ‘The Onslow Boys’, who are old enough to drive cars, drink beer and not worry about curfews.  

Tess’s summer of working expands her world with a series of first times with new friends, forbidden love and heartbreaking chaos.
All with the one boy she has never been able to forget. 
It will be a summer she will always remember.

When I am in the zone I lock myself away in my office (especially when editing) I have a glass lolly jar to my left that I fill with maltese’s, snakes, cool mints, peanut MM’s. I get myself an ice cold Pepsi Max and put my foot heater on, low background music through iTunes and settle into a sugar induced writing session. It’s the only way!

Desired Affliction 2 by C.A. Harms

Review by Lil' Max

This is the second book in the series Let me refresh your memory on what happened in book 1.
Lexi is on her way off to college with her BFF Megan, and was just going through the motions in life not really giving a fuck about anything especially her own self-worth.  She felt shitty and unwanted, her answer: drink until she was numb and end up doing the walk of shame in the morning.  She thought that maybe after starting college she would stop doing this self deprecating song and dance and be able to get back to "normal" whatever the Fuck that is and then... she falls into his path, Kole. Kole is a boy she had a crush on when she was only twelve.  And shit, he brings back so many memories, the damn Good and Bad.  Lexi is now in an internal struggle with her brain and her hormones on whether or not she should even approach or speak to Kole.

Ahhhhh, and like the good little natural things they are, her hormones end up winning, but her insecurities and past trauma make it difficult to do much of anything, but fuck it up.

Kole doesn't do anything remotely close to a relationship.  Just Sex. That is all girls are for. He had his heart broke and fuck if he's ever going to go through that shit again.  So, he keeps it simple and thinks with his little head so he can protect his big heart! However, all his simple flies out the window when he happens to see Lexi again and remember how this cute little girl was with her damned big eyes and how hard she crushed on him years ago.  And fuck him, because now she's all grown up and damn it all to hell if she isn't fine as Fuck!  Oh hell yeah, of course he wants to tap that! But Kole has no idea how broken Lexi is.  And when he finds out what happened to her all he wants to do is keep her safe, then somehow he falls for her. 
The question is how can they even try to have a NOW relationship if they can't get past their PAST relationships. The only solid thing they have going for them is the chemistry and fierce  physical attraction along with their desire to be in a "normal" relationship. It's the "how the hell is this gonna work factor" that has everything fucked up.  

And the saga continues in book 2.....

Lexi, is dealing with her ghosts of the past and Kole has by every standard of society become Pussy whipped! As these two try their damnedest to make it work,  they experience every Fuckin speed bump and road block along the way.  C.A. Harms gurl you freaking got me with this one! I laughed, I cried and I bit my nails to the quick in anticipation of what to expect next.
Not to mention several panty changes from the Hot, Sweaty, Nasty, Monkey sex they had over and over and...OH MY GAWD did I mention Kole's tongue ring? Whew *dabs sweat from brow* that damn thing makes me crazy!!!  Sorry, umm......... what was I saying OH YA so anyways,  these two have to find the strength to overcome the all the bullshit that results from their insecurities and they do make some strides but shit...  I swear Kole and Lexi take two steps forward and then BAM reality sets in again and they fall steps back.  Will they ever get their HEA? Ummmmm, CAN I SAY THAT I LOVE that there is no cliffy! So go GRAB your copy today to find out!

This definitely gets my stamp of approval with 5 BadAssDirtyWillTheyMakeItStars!

Sweet Surrender Cover Reveal from Angel Steel

Sweet Surrender Book Synopsis
For five long years, Chantal has been in love with Dom. They have always had a great friendship and flirted with each other like nobody’s business, which just seemed to be their thing. Chantal’s feelings for Dom were obvious to everyone but him.
After being rejected for the last time by Dom, Chantal is fed up and ready to move on…or so she thinks. She finds solace in a familiar face and starts anew. Things start to heat up, and along with new beginnings come new surprises…and secrets. An old flame resurfaces and things go awry. The crazier life gets, the harder it is to keep her secrets from the people she loves, including Dom. Can she keep these secrets hidden forever?
Dom has been hiding his feelings for Chantal for five years. He just can’t see a way to make it work. There are things about him that she can never know. One could test her limits and the other would certainly test their relationship. Either way, Dom is afraid he will lose her if she were to ever find out.
Will the love that Chantal and Dom has for each other, be strong enough for them to cope with all of the lies and deceit? Or will it end them for good?


Dom continued pumping both his hands, his grip tightened around his erection, as his other moved faster and faster in her wet core. “Your close, aren’t you, baby.” He whispered through gritted teeth.
“Yes, sir.” She panted.
“I want you to watch me as I come all over you, darling.”
Opening her eyes as he shifted over her, twisting his wrist, hitting that magic spot deep inside of her as his fist pumped. His hips jerked forward and moaned out as his release shot out and landed over her lower stomach. Her walls clamped down on his fingers, wanting that release herself.
“Come now, Chantal.” Dom growled at her.
Screaming with the force of her release, her spine arched off the bed feeling like it was about to break in two. Her thighs squeezed his hand between them, but he was still moving his fingers inside of her, extending her orgasm.
“Oh my god.” She said between breaths.
Dom slid to the floor, and lightly kissed up her inner thigh and licked ever so slowly over her opening to her clit. She jolted from the contact. “The sweetest nectar.” He mumbled against her.
Dom crawled up her body, trailing kisses with him until he reached her mouth. Sliding his tongue over her lips, tasting herself on him, and closed her mouth over it. His semi erect cock laid over her thigh, and felt it twitch. Grinning to herself, moving her hand down her body and was about to wrap her hand around him, he was off her in a flash.
Dom stood at the end of the bed, pulling up his jeans. Frowning leaning up on her elbows, “That’s it?”
“That’s all you get for today.” Dom replied, and moved into her ensuite. Looking at his back as he closed the door, you have got to be kidding me, really?
Glancing down at the vibrator that was sitting in between her legs, contemplating weather to grab it or not, she never got the chance to grab it, as it was removed from her bed and taken away.
How did he get back in here so quickly? Glaring at Dom across the room, “And who is going to stop me from doing what I want?”
Dom leant down over her, hand on each side of her face, lightly stroking his thumb along her cheek, “I will, Chantal. If you get yourself off, I will know, and you will be punished for it.” He told her with a stern voice.
“What would the punishment be?”
“Could be many things, Chantal, and depending on my mood at the time. Are you going to go through with it?”
Shaking her no at him, Ok, maybe she needed to rethink that thought. Straightening, holding out his hand to her, she slid off the bed and stood right in front of him, pulling her flush against him, “Every single one of your orgasms belong to me, no one else. Now, since you have things to do today, so do I. Go have a shower and I will drop you off.” He said as he turned her around and slapped her bare ass, hissing in a breath, she spun around and faced him. Raising his eyebrow at her, waiting for the smart ass remark to come out, but swallowed it down. Well two could play that game, she thought.

Strangers by A.L. Parks

I have always believed in the philosophy that everyone has a soul mate.  The question is can you have more than one in a It'setime?

Abby has been grief stricken for the last 4 years.  She exists but really only as a shell of herself.  No one really understands what she's going through.  Her friends and family all want her to move on and start living again.  How the hell is she suppose to do that with out Trevor?  She has the same annual routine on the anniversary of Trevor's death.  As she prepares to endure that very day, she goes to her favorite coffee shop. As she sips her coffee, she notices a very handsome stranger with the same agony as her in his eyes. 

When their eyes lock pain  recognizes pain. A feeling of understanding and compassion passes between them and a  familiar comfort level sets in. 

Bryce lost his wife Emily after a grueling battle against Cancer.  He too has his annual event to celebrate with Emily.  It's really the only time he gets to share with her.  When he meets Abby in the coffee shop,  he realizes he is not alone in his struggles with grief.  

This is a story of love and loss.  Trying to find a way to hold on to the past and not let the future pass you by.   Abby and Bryce become BFF's over the course a year.   They know how to support one another in times of need and grow to be very dependent on each other.  Once they realize their friendship has blossomed into something much more,  they have a hard time accepting it.  Will they be able to find a way to honor their past loves and explore the romance they have found in each other?   Or will they both be stuck in this grieving state and never be able to let go of the the LOVE they both lost? 

Never in Million years would I have thought this was debut novel.  A.L . Parks laid her cards on the table and she had a Royal Flush baby!!

Cover Reveal for Storm by Nina Levine

STORM Book Description  

Life can be a bitch but love can get you through any storm.

Madison Cole’s family is the Storm Motorcycle Club. Her father is the President and her brother is the VP. She grew up surrounded by bikers, crime and violence. Two years ago she walked away from her family and the world they live in. Her soul was shattered, her heart was broken and she had an addiction she couldn't shake. She picked up the pieces and put herself back together. Now her family wants her back. The club is being threatened and they send a club member to return her home to safety; the one person that could destroy everything she has worked so hard to build.

Jason Reilly has sacrificed a lot for the motorcycle club he calls family. Two years ago he made the biggest sacrifice of all; he gave up the woman he loved for them. Now he is being sent to bring her back and he is conflicted. He thought he was over her but discovers their connection is as strong as ever. Their love was all-consuming, passionate and fiery. It was also their undoing and he doesn't know if either of them is strong enough to battle the demons that ripped them apart, to find love again. 

Madison and Jason are brought back together by a force out of their control; one that pushes them to a breaking point. Can they overcome their past and discover a love worth fighting for or will the harsh reality of their world finally and completely break them both?

RELEASING Tuesday, November 26th
Here's your TEASER.....

Fuck, she wasn't going to make this easy for either of us.  I was convinced that Scott was handing me my balls on a plate by sending me here.  One look at Madison and I wanted to shove them at her and get the fuck out of here.  Christ, she was still as goddamn sexy as the last time I laid eyes on her.  I ran my eyes down her body and took in the low-cut, short dress and fuck me heels; god I loved those shoes and my dick twitched just thinking about wrapping those legs around me.

“Can we talk outside for a minute?” I asked.

She pursed her lips and appeared to be assessing the situation before she gave me a curt nod and said, “Fine.”  And with that she grabbed her purse, brushed past me and stalked towards the front door.  I watched her ass sway as I followed her out and told my dick to settle the fuck down.  No way were we going there again; I was here for one reason and one reason only.

Once we were outside she reached into her purse and pulled out a cigarette.  She quickly lit it and took a long drag.  God, I hoped she was still sober; last I had heard she was and she looked pretty healthy but the way she sucked on that cigarette looked like a junkie fixing for their next hit.

“Scott told you I was coming, yeah?” I asked, taking in the glare she had levelled on me.  Yep, balls on a plate.

“No,” she snapped, “He said someone was coming but he failed to mention it was you.”  She looked like she was going to say something else but took another long drag on her cigarette instead.

“Well, you've got me until he pulls me back home so I say we make the best of a shitty situation and put our crap aside.”

She took another long drag on her cigarette, threw it down and ground it out before scowling at me, “You’re a fucking asshole, J and for all I care you can go to hell.”

Unfortunately, that witch died lifetimes ago. Undeterred, he continued to search. Two years ago he found Hecate's remains lying in a crypt hidden deep within the Louisiana Bayou. Today, he watched a coven of witches bring her back to life.

Touch Me by T.H. Snyder

Review by Lil' Max:
Char is the sweet supportive younger sister that always has her sister's back. Hell she even picks up the slack for her sister when she moves off to LA for the job of a lifetime. Char really has no life now. She is BFF's with her sister's boyfriend Derrick since she doesn't really have any friends. No real friends after her douche bag of an ex played her for a fool and slipped and fell into bed with her BFF. 
Oops ya rite! Char has been lost ever since, just going through the motions, Until some psycho tries to steal the paper she's about to grab at the market. WTH? Then, somehow he just keeps popping up everywhere. He's hot! Maybe he's just what she needs, but after everything she has been through can she trust anyone?????
Riley is a sexy construction manager from North Carolina. 

He needs a change of scene.  He basically has no family and no where to go so why not venture out in the world right. He see's a craigslist ad for a roommate in Boston so he packs up his truck, grabs his dog Manny and hits the road. After he meets his new roommate Derrick, all he wants to do is find a new job and start his life. Until he meets this "crazy mini-mart bitch" who tries to steal his paper, and such begins the romance of Char and Riley.
These two cross paths and can't forget the electricity that ignites when they touch. As much as Char distances herself she can't shake Riley from her head. He's so damn hot, and witty and easy to get along with. Riley is everything you could want in a man. Once Char pushes past her insecurities from her ex, she is able to enjoy everything Riley has to offer. Let me tell you Riley will swoon you too! This story is a hopeless romantic's wet dream. It's just the escape you need to take. I give it 4 BadAssDirtyFallHeadOverHealsStars!!!!!
